    Deepest condolences to the family on the loss of dear sweet Pam. Pam was a dear classmate of mine at South High School. Our group of ladies back in class of 1972 was called the F Troop….me, Pam, Neesie, Donna, Zola and Addie. Great memories… first times for everything…. Was fortunate to see Pam and Larry again after years of living our lives… having and raising children… being blessed with grandchildren…… it was so good to hook up with you two again. Richard and I are praying for the family and I will always cherish the memories of Pam in my heart. God bless you, Larry, and your entire family.
